Under FIFA's rules, players born on the island of Ireland can opt to play for Northern Ireland or the Republic but not both. Furthermore people born in the north can claim citizenship of the Republic even if they have never set foot in it. This has led to some controversy as some players who have represented Northern Ireland at youth level have opted to play for the Republic at senior level. This is largely a reflection of the sectarian nature of Ulster: traditionally those from the Unionist tradition opt to play for Northern Ireland while those from the Catholic, nationalist community prefer to play for the Republic.

Designer: New Balance

3 mobile logoIn an unusual step, the FAI launched both first and second strips together in March 2020, no doubt in anticipation of the play-offs that would settle the four remaining places for Euro 2020. Within a week, all competitive sport in Europe was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The strips themselves were elegantly simple, monochromatic designs with minimalist trim. The first choice was in "Eden Green" set off by gold applications. As usual, replicas sold to supporters were disfigured by a sponsor's logo.
